The Hawken Fund

2017-2018 Goal: $1,500,000

Year in and year out, more than 1,800 alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends join together to fulfill Hawken’s promise. Hawken’s approach to education is distinctive, putting the student at the center of learning. Hawken emphasizes learning by doing and values problem solving and critical thinking skills over rote learning, because that’s what it takes to prepare students to thrive in a changing world.

This type of education requires resources. Philanthropic support of The Hawken Fund allows the School to continue to focus on the development of character and gives the School the opportunity to expand learning opportunities.
